Nuri’s expecting a quiet Christmas, driving his cab, doing some studying, enjoying good food and drink – and devoting some serious loving to boyfriend Eduardo. Occasionally he misses his homeland of Turkey, but he’s content to share the London celebrations with Eddy.
But what with Eddy’s distress over his new role at the local comedy club, interference in their love life from Nuri’s irrepressible brothers, a disturbing number of costumed Santas on the street, the dangerous slush on the roads, and then the portly, bearded man dressed in red, in need of an urgent cab ride… It doesn’t look like things will be that quiet after all!
With A Kick #6.
A big thanks to Creative Minds Promotions for the opportunity to read and review this story.
This isn’t the first story in the With A Kick series by Clare London, and I haven’t read any of the others, but that didn’t detract from this story, or make it difficult to follow. I was sucked straight into it, and felt as though I was spending time with old friends although I hadn’t met them before. I’m really impressed with how the author not only tells the story in fifty pages, but manages to give the reader a strong sense of not just Nuri and Eddy’s relationship, but the lovely feeling of family. I loved Nuri’s brothers, and their banter, and the way they looked out not only Nuri, but Eddy as well.
Although this story is set at Christmas, I think it’s one that could be read and enjoyed at any time of the year. There’s a feeling of magic about it, and a wonderful glimpse of the Christmas spirit. I’d highly recommend this story to readers who like a feel-good quick read, with likable characters, a sense of family, and a little bit of magic. 5 out of 5 stars.
